Quantitative information about the geometry of the carotid artery bifurcation is relevant for investigating the onset and progression of atherosclerotic disease. This paper proposes an automatic approach for quantifying the carotid bifurcation angle, carotid area ratio, carotid bulb size and the vessel tortuosity from multispectral MRI. First, the internal and external carotid centerlines are determined by finding a minimum cost path between user-defined seed points where the local costs are… CONTINUE READING
